I couldn’t resist using the Mariah Carey song as my title!;) So, you could say I am a little (really! only a little!) obsessed with dying things! But it’s just so easy and I love the results: new clothing without having to actually buy the clothing! This used to be a white peasant top that I wear allll the time! I love it! But, because it is white, it started to show signs of wear in the form of stains!:( So, to JoAnn’s I went to buy a box of RIT dye! I bought the same color that I used for these pants; I really like blue!:)
You can’t really tell in the first picture, but this top has white flowers embroidered on the hem and sleeves. And when I dyed it, they stayed white-ish, which i think makes it look even better. I have found that with a lot of industrial threads, there’s too much nylon in the thread for it to dye properly, (especially embroidery thread) so it doesn’t change color as much!
